The Hatch Act was a law passed to prohibit federal employees from participating in certain forms of partisan activities, or basically politics. This would ensure basic fairness and an unbiased federal government. Take for example, an employee at FBI making large donations or giving speeches to a Democratic candidate for senator. Some may misconstrue this as the FBI organization as a whole advocating or endorsing this candidate. ChaCha!
